Jackie & Gavin part 2

Here is the 2nd part to this AMAZING wedding! As I know I few of you were after a story re her gown...well below Jackie kindly emailed this to YOUR response...from somewhere in Italy mind you! I guess you 2 are having a fab trip! Hope you enjoy these next few images!! Vanessa

Hi Girls... Anyhow... we have been logging on to your blogspot every couple of days to see if you had put up any pics! Saw the first 2 that you put up back on 3 March and absolutely loved them... Then I got a text message from my mum at 3am (italy time) the other day saying I should check out the blog... WOW!!! We are so excited by what you've posted and, even though we want the next 3 weeks to last as long as possible(!?!), we can't wait to get back so that we can go through all the photo's... Vanessa - you've done an amazing job, just like I knew you would!... As far as the story behind the dress... well there isn't one really... as you know Vanessa, I'm not really a traditional type of gal... Gav and I have been to numerous weddings over the past 4 years and there's a theme running through them all... white strapless dresses - looking back, even though each of the brides looked beautiful, I can't remember their dresses and in my memory they all wore the same dress! Harsh maybe... but I figured that you get one chance to wear an amazing dress and I wanted to wear something that I loved and that made a statement... I suppose something that would make jaws drop without being "what was she thinking"... and since I never wear white and my favourite colour is teal... I thought hell... why not? Then came the hard task of finding someone to design and make the dress of my dreams... I searched online for couture designers who made dresses in colour and stumbled accross Wildberry's website... as you know, from there I found not only my photographer, but also got a referral to Zhanel where Ange and I collaborated to ensure the dress as you see it now! Hope that answers your questions! As I said... really looking forward to seeing the rest of the pics :)
